Most of the time these exhausts don't really sound much better than the OEM exhaust. Definitely not thousands of dollars better!

I think they are the best quality exhaust systems you can purchase! fitment is great. You can pick up the whole system with one hand and it sounds mean!

Agreed. If you're shelling out that kind of cash give the customer a few good aftermarket options if they want them.

I never said they lacked quality nor merit, just that they don't sound that great most of the time to me.

This is true. I had an akrapovic on my e90 m3 and it was nice. Looked good, light weight, but sound was only a minor improvement.

Akra is definitely one of the best in quality and highest in price. It creates a unique tone with its Ti composition. My guess is this thing is short of 9k retail msrp?

Edit: please dont compare a 4.4 twin turbo engine to a V12 F car LOL. You cant duplicate the tonal resonance to the most objective of ears.

That's strange - I had the full Evolution exhaust on my e92 M3, and it sounded like the apocalypse!
Our group attended a top speed runway event, and tons of the drivers commented on how great it sounded, even saying it compared favourably to the Gallardos and F430s there.

All of you need to get your hearing tested.

You guys in NA are probably getting a louder version. EU has the mandatory gpf/opf exhaust filter, which ruins the sound. Lucky you.

It gives you an exotic euro sound but it’s not very loud. If you want loud and aggressive sound, Akra is not the right system.
